Gill is running a competition to win a full-spec’d Optimist Winner 3D Star worth £3,500 at the RYA Suzuki Dinghy Show in March.  With the advanced rig, cross cut sail, and launching trolley all included, the boat is fully-kitted out and race-ready.  In addition there will be a selection of Gill sailing kit added to the prize to make sure that the lucky winner is properly kitted out.  

The brand has been a long-time supporter of junior sailing particularly through its relationship with the International Optimist Class Association, where it has been the joint title sponsor in the UK with Volvo Cars for five years.  

The competition to win the boat is available online at

Visitors to the RYA Suzuki Dinghy Show will be able to submit entries at the Gill stand – location C30 – during the show weekend.  The winner will be announced by company founder Nick Gill live at the show at 2pm on Sunday 06 March.  

Gill will be out in force at the RYA Suzuki Dinghy Show.  The brand will have a stand featuring the competition prize, all the latest technical dinghy products and a major retail presence with its dealers.  Launching at the show will be the comprehensive Speedskin and Thermoskin ranges of performance Neoprene products, which provide a completely interactive layering system with phenomenal stretch, comfort and warmth across the spectrum of sailing conditions, and which offer the option of a fully integrated hiking system.

The brand also enjoys a long standing relationship with the RYA as sponsor of its Sport Development programmes including OnBoard and Sailability, and is proud to support the development of grass-roots sailing in the UK.
